Abstract

We have proposed a light-emitting diode (LED) downlight lens that is made of a highly scattered optical transmission (HSOT) polymer. The HSOT polymer contains optimized heterogeneous structures that produce homogeneously scattered light with forward directivity. The full width at half maximum of the illuminance distribution angle can be increased from 16.7° to 37.9° as the concentration of the scattering particles in the HSOT polymer LED downlight lenses of identical shape is increased from 0.015 to 0.100 wt%. The colors in an illuminated area are highly uniform, which is not discernible by the human eye, with a high output efficiency greater than 85 %.
